This week's question: If you could have dinner with your favorite book character, who would it be and what would you serve?


The first character that came to mind was Anne Shirley from Anne of Green Gables. I can totally picture having her over for a fancy high tea. She'd love to dress up in her best clothes and hat, and pretend to be a society lady. And she'd probably bring me flowers. If I had a parlour, that's where we'd sit, and we'd be very ladylike and civilized and pretend to be very serious (if you've read the Anne books or seen the movies, you'll understand why I say 'pretend' to be serious). It would be a lot of fun. And I might just serve cordial. ;-) 

TGIF at GReads Week 14: TGIF is hosted by Ginger at GReads - be sure to check out her blog and join in the fun!

This week's question: Spooktacular Reads: Which books do you consider festive Halloween reads? Which stories have chilled you to the bone?


I love reading anything paranormal during October, which is why I came up with the Paranormal Reading Challenge. For people who are into ghosts and mysteries, I'd definitely recommend Heather Graham's Adam Harrison Investigations series. They were my introduction to mystery books a few years ago, and some of them are pretty scary (for me anyway, but I'm a total wuss when it comes to scary things lol). Because I don't really read horror, I can't talk too much about that...the only Stephen King book I've read is Carrie, and I didn't see what was so scary (or great) about it, even though some people have said it's really scary. I'd love to read The Shining, but I need to gear myself up for it, I think haha.



Happy Friday, and happy almost Halloween! I hope you've all had a great week. Be sure to leave a comment below, and if you participate in either of these memes, leave a link to your post.

  3. Hopping through. I think raspberry cordial would be required for tea with Anne. I bet she wouldn't drink it though - bad memories.

  4. At least you wouldn't have to worry about getting drunk accidentally if Anne mixed up and gave you alcohol! ;D Great pick! I love Anne!

  8. You can't have Anne over and NOT serve cordial! I haven't read Anne of Green Gables in such a long time, but that scene always sticks with me! lol!

    Now I want to read it again, and then the rest of the Anne Shirley books. She's such a fun character!

  9. Ahaha I was going to mention the "raspberry cordial" as soon as I started reading about who you would invite to tea! That part was so funny-- the Anne of Green Gables movies have been my favorites since I was a little girl, never get tired of watching them ;)

    Thanks for stopping by my Follow Friday this week! :)

  12. I haven't read those books but I used to watch the TV show Avonlea and I always adored it (I believe it was a spin-off of the Anne series?)

    P.S. I'm hosting a giveway of The Near Witch (as well as an interview with the author) at my blog if you'd like to stop by and enter, and possibly spread the word. If I reach 300 followers before the giveway ends, I'll add a second winner!

  13. Sadly, I have to admit I have to idea who that is, but I'm sure it's a great choice! Definitely sounds like it. :)

    Hope you had a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by!
